Docker doesn't need hypervisor to run but relies on the Host OS for its functionality.
This is because Docker Containers consist of only essential binaries & dependencies to be executed.
By that definition, many containers of the same application can share the same OS kernel & run independently.
Hypervisor is an interface used by VM OSes to work with hardware.
Hoping this helps!
